    Name: Creating a "Good Death" Plan: Scripting End-of-Life Wishes
    Date: May 4, 2019
    Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    The end of life. Now is the time to think about it, make decisions, and share with loved ones. While you still can. According to one survey, nearly 75% of us don't have advance directives (living will or healthcare power of attorney). Even a greater percentage have not had a conversation with their loved ones about their end-of-life wishes. After viewing a portion of the documentary, Facing Death, which examines the complicated reality of today’s modern medicalized death, participants will explore the process of how to choose a healthcare power of attorney who will follow their wishes; explore end-of-life decisions and care; as well as begin to script a plan of their wishes. Do you think you don’t need to worry about this because you’re not old, sick or dying? Think again. Cost: FREE. Pre-Registration not required but appreciated for planning purposes. Presented by In the Circle of Life nonprofit organization. Facilitator of event: Jacki Mann RN, Certified Hospice & Palliative Care Nurse. Sponsored by Brookdale Hospice & Kokosing Nature Preserve/Natural Burial Cemetery.
